[speaker not understood] joined the service, they pay for the time that they use the car. they don't pay for fuel, insurance, parking or maintenance. you can drive any of our cars at any time that they're available. like other car sharing services, availability of our cars reduces the expenses of private vehicle ownership ask reduces traffic congestion in cities where we're deployed and save users money. the big difference with our program and other programs is the ability to do a one-way trip as was previously mentioned and it doesn't require an advance reservation and you have the vehicle for as long as you need it. and you can park the vehicle in any legal on-street parking place. doesn't have to be assigned. currently we object rate in san diego, washington, d.c., portland, austin, miami, and all of our users have the same experience. they find the cars on their app generally and they get the car for as long as they need it. in the cities that we operate, we define a home area as how the system works. this is just a picture of the d.c. home area on the left and a

funds to pay for the balance. so, what is the project? no matter how we slice it, it is going to go in multiple phases. we've been working with the navy's primary general contractor for demolition and disposal on the west coast to evaluate different ways we can approach this project. and they came back to us with an analysis and study that had four options, two of which were prohibitively expensive so we took them off the table right away. the two that are left, both have the same first phase. whichever way we go, it starts off the same. so, that's why i'm here hoping to get the project moving while we figure out the rest of that. phase 1, by removing of the end sections which are removable by design, the dry dock was built so that it could -- dry dock itself lift itself up out of the water. so, one of the early stumbling blocks with this project was by far the most economical way to do it was in a graving dock, which is essentially a concrete back it up. -- tub. you can fill the water in, drain it out, have everything contained and save space. the only one that is nearby is at mayor island and it's too narrow. so, this solution of the project involves taking the end sections off and turning them sideways. when you turn them sideways they fit. this would get through about a million and a half

on medicare. are you going to trust us or are you going to trust these guys who by the way have never really liked medicare ever since its inception. i think that was talking right to the audience and asking that question was good. i think for ryan, though, sort of a best moment was just saying these guys, it's been too slow. we can do it, and they haven't. and then when he turned to biden and said, do you know what the unemployment rate in scranton is, and biden's hometown and he ghostia, well, it's over 10% now it was 8% something when you guys took office. >> and that way i felt the debate felt what we're heading for the photo finish. biden framed it as a choice, ryan framed it as a referendum. each of those arguments have a lot of appeal to the last sliver of undecided voters. >> >> i think biden has the most trouble with the questions about libya at the beginning. and fosh ryan, i think that -- i thought the most interesting moment, the highest risk moment was him really underscoring their opposition to abortion in a way i have rarely heard in a republican ticket. the romne
